The owners of an innovative Bastrop office/warehouse park invite the public to an open house & ribbon cutting on Thursday, April 20, from 3-6 p.m.
Rundell Business Park, a six-acre park located at 704 Hwy. 71 West, will be showcasing its recently completed fourth and fifth buildings. The ribbon cutting, which occurs at 4:30 p.m., is being sponsored by the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce.
“The open house is a way to say hello to the community and mingle with friends,” said Patti Ayres, the Business Manager for the property. “We want to showcase our property, and we also want folks to meet our Realtor, Susan Nogues.” She added there will be delicious food and beverages from Baxters on Main, plus a drawing for gift cards.
Ayres said the open house will be an opportunity to meet “our current tenants and take a walk through our new 6,000 square-foot Office/Warehouse buildings.” The development currently has six tenants, ranging from a machine-design facility to an absinthe distillery. Rundell Business Park is a family-owned business. “The original owners were Allen and Jean Rundell,” Ayres said. “Mr. Rundell was a longtime Austin business man. He passed away in 2002 and Mrs. Rundell passed away in 2010. Their sons, Dale Rundell and Terry Norris (of Austin’s AR & JR Real Estate Holdings, LP) are the current owners.” She added that Allen Rundell purchased the Bastrop property in 2000.”
“We chose this type of development because we believed that Bastrop would benefit from having more office-warehouse space available for lease in the growing community,” Ayres said. She said the recent expansion came after consults with the Bastrop Economic Development Corporation. “Last summer we met with the Bastrop Economic Development Team and determined that it was a good time to start adding buildings,” Ayres said.
In January a fourth building was completed and a fifth building is just a few weeks from being ready for occupancy. Each building is 6,000 square feet and can house one to four tenants. The businesses currently housed in the business park include: Centex Batteries, LLC; Violet Crown Spirits; Texas Machine Design, LLC; Outlaw Truck Outfitters; Road Runner Radiology, LLC; and Quantum Fulfillment and Support.
The Rundell family has a history of being committed to the community. “We were the donation drop-off and pick-up site for the two catastrophic fires in Bastrop County, in 2009 and 2011 (the Complex Fire). We opened our facility as a collection point to aid in the recovery process for the Bastrop residents,” Ayres said.
